I am planning to cook two whole chicken breasts tomorrow with brussel sprouts. I was thinking to season the sprouts first and then place them in a pan directly under the cooking chicken.
I will season the chicken and sprouts and spread them on a shallow aluminum pan. I will get the fire going by placing the charcoals on one side of the grill. Then, I will get the temperature to 350 degrees, raise the grate and place the pan with the sprouts on the opposite site of the charcoals. I will replace the grate and place the chicken directly over the sprouts.
The Weber grate has on opposite sides a way to flip a portion of it to manage the charcoals under it. So, I will take advantage of this to stir the sprouts a couple of times since raising the hot grate it doesn't seem an option.
I would also try potatoes with the sprouts but the special diet that my wife and I are following will not allow, I think the stirring of the sprouts will be a bit challenging and I have to get the proper tool for the job.
What do you think? Will this work? Will the drips work on the sprouts?
Thanks for your time and consideration.
